A truly amazing group!

Dr. Lalchandani and his longtime staff at Oakdale Dental Associates are a truly amazing group of individuals dedicated to their patients. They have combined their talents by working closely together for many years, thereby earning a sterling reputation consisting of kindness, compassion and integrity. I continue to bless the day I was referred to this fine office, regretting only that it had not happened years earlier!

I really enjoy smiling!

You and your staff have made this recent “new denture” journey one of little discomfort and great joy. I really enjoy smiling now! I will miss seeing your “girls” who are all such a great group of truly professional women. Lastly – you are truly a craftsman par excellence!

Your patience was amazing!

Thank you for all of your special attention and support. If anything you should get the prize. I never felt so greatly taken care of before. Your patience was amazing! You were speedy and compassionate to my needs. I will recommend you to anyone who needs dental services.


I would like to let you know how grateful I am that you all made me feel comfortable at all my appointments.
